There is some archaeological evidence of occupation of the area that became known as Yorkshire as long ago as the Ice Age. The earliest recorded inhabitants were the Celts, some of which occupied the area that became the North and West Ridings of Yorkshire. The Romans conquered the Celts in 71 AD and remained until the early years of the fifth century when the Roman Empire was in decline. By the eighth century the area was taken over by Danish Vikings and as their rule went into decline the area became part of the kingdom of Wessex.

Yorkshire loyalties were divided between Parliamentarians and the Royalists during the English civil war with the Royalists base being York and the Parliamentarians, Hull, York and Leeds were all wool producing towns and these prospered from the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries onward. During the Industrial Revolution the most notable industries in the area were textiles, steel and coal. In the towns ordinary people’s living conditions had declined by the nineteenth century although this was changed to some extent when modern sewers and water supplies were brought in.

According to records from 1991 Yorkshire had a population approaching four million people. Yorkshire is well known for its beautiful countryside including the York Dales National Park, the Peak District and the North York Moors. Part of what was the North Riding of Yorkshire is now one of the biggest nature reserves in England. While York is regarded as the county seat, Leeds is the largest city in Yorkshire. Nowadays unemployment is a problem due to the closure of so many coal pits with only one remaining near Rotherham.

For the visitor there are castles and stately homes throughout Yorkshire and Yorkshire people are proud of their county’s long history. There are numerous country estates and Grade 1 listed buildings throughout the county as well as the remains of some of the abbeys and monasteries. There are seven cities in Yorkshire, Leeds, Sheffield, Wakefield, York, Hull, Bradford and Ripon and there is plenty of variety for shoppers, particularly in Leeds and Sheffield. Yorkshire is renowned for a host of musical talent and there are plenty of bars and nightclubs to satisfy the visitor out for a night on the town.
